Note: FP2020 uses a rolling baselines so values are recalculated each year based on the newset available data.
Sri Lanka became a new FP2020 commitment making country in July 2018. In Sri Lanka, the Family Planning Program has been integrated into maternal and child health services since the 1960s. A national family planning strategy is being developed to improve family planning programs and to address newly emerging issues and challenges. A multi-year Costed Implementation Plan for family planning will be drafted in 2018/2019. Government of Sri Lanka commits to including a budget-line for reproductive health in 2019 and to engaging the education sector to address the accessibility of adolescents and youth to family planning services and information. Recognizing that the causes of maternal mortality are associated with the unmet need for family planning, Sri Lanka commits to promoting rights-based family planning, increasing service delivery points, capacity building of health workforce, and strengthening postpartum and post abortion care, with a goal to increase modern contraceptive prevalence rate (mCPR) from 53.6% to 57.2% by 2025.

FP2020 uses a suite of quantitative metrics—Core Indicators—to monitor progress annually across 69 focus countries. Estimates for the Core Indicators are produced annually by commitment countries through a network of country-based Track20 M&E officers housed in government institutions.
